Some Leeds United fans think Victor Orta is the problem

Leeds United’s recent results and performances in the Championship have not been great.

Leeds United started the season strongly, and their performances and results suggested that they could challenge for the automatic promotion places.

The Whites, who have not featured in the Premier League since 2004, narrowly failed to finish in the top six of the Championship last season.

The West Yorkshire outfit will be determined to end up in the playoffs this season at least.

Recent results and performances, though, have been disappointing, as Leeds have fallen out of the playoff spots for the time being.

Leeds fans are understandably not happy with the current situation, and some of them seem to be turning on Victor Orta.

Orta was appointed the Director of Football at Leeds in May 2017 after leaving Middlesbrough, and he has been responsible for making most, if not all, of the signings in the summer transfer window.

While head coach Thomas Christiansen has also been criticised by the Leeds fans for not being able to get the results, some of them appear to be harsh on Orta.

Below are some of the best comments:
